Overview

 

As the region continues to find its footing in the aftermath of COVID-19, cybersecurity has taken center stage. Threats have increased considerably as bad actors exploit the vulnerabilities presented as an unintended outcome of the pandemic.

The 2021 edition will bring together the region’s pre-eminent technology experts, providers, analysts, and speakers.

Join us for a detailed look into the post-COVID-19 security market and the biggest challenges facing the region’s governments and businesses. We will explore innovative, up-to-the-minute use cases and outline the key focus areas for organizations looking to minimize their cyber-risk exposure.
